show that Charles Gorsuch, son of John and Anne Gorsuch, of 
the Kingdom of England, deceased, married, in 1G90, Ann Haw-

THE TODDS OF KING AND QUEEN iv-.i 

Harry I, Todd had a large grant of land direct from the crown. 
In the eighth volume of Hennings Statutes, page 631, may be found 
an act of the general assembly, of date February 1772, docking the 
entail of the estate of William Todd, gentleman. It recites that one 
Thomas Todd, formerly of the County of Gloucester, gentleman, 
was, in his lifetime, seized of a considerable estate in land, and 
among others a large and valuable tract lying in the Mattsapruy 
River, in the county of King and Queen, and of another tract, con> 
taining about one thousand acres, lying in the Dragon's Swamp, in 
the parish of St. Stephens, in the said County of King and Queen. 

In the deed, dated 16th March, 1709, this Thomas Todd granted 
to his son William Todd and the heirs of his body begotten of 
Martha Vicaris, his intended wife, five hundred acres, part of his 
said tract on the Mattsapruy River, and by his will of date the 4th 
of March, 1723, the same Thomas Todd bequeathed the tract on 
the Dragon's Swamp to his sons Philip and Richard Todd, 

By the death of Philip and Richard, and without male heirs, the 
whole of this estate became vested in the above William Todd, son 
of Thomas. From this WiUiam Todd, the elder, it descended to 
his grandson, by Martha Vicaris, William Todd, of King and Queen, 
v/hose right therein was vested in George Brooks, William Lyne, 
Gregory Baylor, John Taylor, Corbin and Richard Tunstail, as trus- 
tees, to be sold and the proceeds reinvested as directed. 

From an account on page 57 of the same volume of Henning 
it is ascertained that the above William Todd, the elder, died in 
1736, leaving daughters Dorothy and Betty; grandsons William 
Gordon and Richard Barbour and sons Richard and Thomas Todd. 

He left a very large estate in the parish of St. Thomas, Orange 
Cotmty, as well as considerable possessions in King and Queen. 

A large and valuable plot of this property he bequeathed to 
his oldest son, Richard Todd, who was the father of the above Wil- 

lO 



liam Todd, grandson of VVilliam, the elder, in whom the entail 
docked in tlie first statute above mentioned had vested. 

This Richard Todd's wife was Elizabeth Richards, a woman of 
great energy and good intellect. William Todd, v.'hose entail was 
docked in 1772, was tlieir eldest son, and the noted Judge, Thomas 
Todd, of Kentucky, their youngest. The latter is stated by Collins 
to have been born in King and Queen County in 1765. His father 
died v/hen he v/as a child; his excellent mother &oon follov/ed to 
the grave. Thus orphaned at an early age, by his guardian he was 
afforded opiX)rtunities for obtaining a good English education and 
xhe lounuaviou oi oxic in llie cla^incs. 

By the embarrassments of his guardian he v/as, while still a 
boy, thrown upon his own recources. For a short tim.e, during the 
closing days of the Revolution, he was in the army. Invited to be- 
come an inmate of the family of his relative, Karry Innes, then 
residing in Bedford County, he became acquainted with the art of 
surveying and obtained the proficiency as a clerk and those meth- 
odical habits and attention to details, which proved the foundation 
of future eminence. Collins asserts tliat he came first to Ken- 
tucky, with the family of Harry Innes, in 1786. McClurg, who v/as 
not apt to have erred in such a matter, that he was at Danville in 
1784, and was chosen and acted as clerk of the first convention held 
at that place in that year, of the convention of delegates from the 
militia companies called by General Ben Logan, v/hich was the fore- 
runner of all the others. From that time he was clerk of all the 
succeeding conventions, until the establishment of the State in 1792. 
He represented Kentucky in the Virginia legislature before the 
separation. In 1792 he was one of the electors of the Senate. He 
v/as the first clerk of the federal court in the district, and upon its 
cstablishmednt of the court of appeals, under the second constitu- 
tion of 1799, he v/as appointed its first clerk. In ISOl he was ap- 
pointed judge of the court of appeals, and in 180S its chief justice. 
V/hen the seventh United States Circuit District was formed he was 



1 1 



appointed by Mr. Jefferson an associate justice of the United States 
Supreme Court, which ofnce he held until his death in 1826. Judge 
Thomas Todd was an amiable, generous man, of kind heart and 
popular manner. 

That he was a man of talent and ability, and of good profes- 
sional attainments is sufliciently evidenced by the acceptable manner 
in which he discharged the duties imposed by those high trusts. 

His abilities commanded the respect, while his personal quali- 
ties won the friendship of John Marshall.

Mr. John R. Whitcraft, 

Merchantville, N. J. 
Dear Sir: 

Your letter of the Sth inst. is to hand, and beg to say that v/e 
have rua tli^ lnJc^.ts xoi deeds, etc., covering some years before 
and after the period you state (1676-7), but fail to find any deed 
from Mrs. Anne Todd to Charles Gorsuch, trustee. This deed may 
be in the Court of Common Pleas of Baltimore City, or the Court 
that has the custody of the old County Provincial Records. 

There must have been some relation existing between Charles 
Gorsuch and James Todd on account of the following entry: 

Nich's Fitzsimmons and vAfe, and James Tod; agent, Charles 
Garsuch. — High Court of Chancery. Spa. and Injunct. Bill to be 
filed in 15 days, viz: by ye 25 inst. (Oct., 1695). Liber P. C. No. 2, 
folio 318. 

Nich's Fitzsimmon and James Tod; agent, Charles Gorsuch. — 
High Court of Chancery. This cause agreed. Liber P. C. No. 2, 
folio 339. 

This is all we are able to give you concerning your inquiry. 
Very truly yours, 

THOMAS A. SMITH, 

Commissioner of the Land Office.
